OF BRAIN INJURY IN NEW MEXICO
In 2009 the Brain Injury Advisory Council funded a study of brain injury data in New Mexico. The Epidemiology and Response Division/Office of Injury Prevention at the NM Department of Health collected the latest hospitalization and fatality data relating to brain injury. Our focus was to begin looking at the incidence, causes and prevalence of brain injury in NM using a broad definition that includes traumatic as well as acquired brain injuries. The resulting report and fact sheet will help guide the work of the BIAC for years to come.
